According to Film Music Reporter, Pacific Rim and Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi has signed on to score Legendary Pictures’ big-screen adaptation of Warcraft.
Along with the aforementioned duo, Djawadi’s previous credits include work on Clash of the Titans and this year’s Dracula Untold. Now, the experienced composer will take a trip to Azeroth along with Moon director Duncan Jones, who recently confirmed that production had wrapped on the live-action epic.
But Warcraft is far from completion, what with Industrial Light and Magic knee deep in special effects work. And given the fantastical setting of Jones’ film, it may be some time yet before we see a full-length trailer.
That said, during this year’s San Diego Comic-Con event, lucky attendees were fortunate enough to see some early footage for the film, which has since been billed as combining the epic scope found in The Lord of the Rings with visual pedigree of CGI found in James Cameron’s Avatar.
With the annual Blizzcon event set to take place at the Anaheim Convention Center on November 7th, we can hopefully look forward to hearing more information about the live-action Wacraft movie sooner rather than later. Either way, Duncan Jones’ take on Activison-Blizzard’s genre-defining MMO is set to hit theaters on March 11th, 2016.
Legendary Pictures’ WARCRAFT, a 3D epic adventure of world-colliding conflict based upon Blizzard Entertainment’s globally-renowned universe, is directed by Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) and is written by Charles Leavitt and rewritten by Duncan Jones. The producers are Charles Roven, Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni and Alex Gartner. Stuart Fenegan, Jillian Share and Brent O’Connor serve as executive producers. Blizzard’s Chris Metzen co-produces.
